Removing First from their LHR 772s seems like a strategy with little logic. A large aircraft with no First means lots more WT seats to fill. It may make sense on some routes, but not on all.

Ok so maybe they are planning to use their new 789s on those 4-class 772 routes with premium demand. However these are smaller aircraft.

They then leave no room for the growth that will come, particularly as a third runway is in all probability 11-12 years off. This situation dovetails Delhi, where they clearly wanted to cut seat count and therefore hike prices and thus improve yields.
